2009 Chevrolet Avalanche Crew Cab LTZ 4dr Crew Cab SB (5.3L 8cyl 6A)


Review

Great truck does everything I ask from hauling my boat and landscape materials such as rocks, yet is good looking enough to hang with the Mercedes and Lexus at high end restaurants. The only cheapness I've found is the plastic door handles which look and feel like chrome both inside and out, tend to break and fall apart in the FL. heat, as well as some failures in some of the electronic sensors over time. The plastic wings behind the windows also turn from black to light gray if you don't constantly maintain them with a protectant.


Best Features

Inner door to extend the truck bed, Really helpful with kayaks. Hard covers for truck bed which you can actually stand on. Radio volume and selection as well as cruise on steering wheel.


Worst Features

Lights that stay on in cargo area and control of it from the tailgate. Radio stations appearance and vol display by speedometer instead of off to the side. Blue tooth phone hookup instead of onstar which don't pay for due to xtra charge. Electronic roll top bed cover, current ones hard to take off.

Review

This is my second avalanche going from a 2002 to a 2009. More bells and whistles but the performance is better in the 02.Some short changes on the 09 are sun visors 02 had 2 on each side,09 has one per side. No extenders on the 09,two on 02. Only one light in bed area, 02 had one on each side. 09 is air tight when doors are closed radio and nav are excellent. 02 still in family only different driver. Now has 90,000 miles on 02 and never been back to the dealer. Hope the 09 proves this good.


Best Features

XM radio,on star, navigation and rear camera are excellent.


Worst Features

Go back to the double sun visors, extenders, storage are in rear seat in place of cup holders in pull down compartment.

Review

This is the first Chevy I have purchased in nearly 30 years as I am a die hard Honda fan. It was time to buy a new truck and it came down to the Ridgeline and the Avalanche and I stepped out on a limb and bought the Avalanche. My honest opinion is the Avalanche wins from an exterior appeal and available 'bells and whistles" standpoint but the Honda wins on the interior quality, cargo space and clearly thought through and efficient space utilization. It is like the Chevy folks focused on what the truck looks like going down the road and curb appeal and the Honda folks focused on the interior " living quarters" area. Avalanche is a great vehicle but needs a little interior help!


Best Features

All the "Bells and Whistles", smooth ride, mid-gate design, curb appeal and great balance between family vehicle and functional utility truck when needed.


Worst Features

Navigation stinks when compared to the Honda navigation system both in visual appeal as well as route guidance capability A front bumper audible alarm would make sense. Fuel economy could be better. A padded non plastic dashboard A larger glove box with more storage on the interior
